Jerwood Collection set for Nottinghamshire gallery, The Harley Gallery


Modern and contemporary art from the celebrated Jerwood Collection will be making its way to The Harley Gallery on Nottinghamshire’s rural Welbeck estate for an exclusive exhibition opening in March.

It will be the collection’s first-ever residency and will run for a year from 27 March. It encompasses four exhibitions led by four different curators and will feature works by renowned 20th-century British artists such as L S Lowry, Barbara Hepworth, Walter Sickert, and Sir Stanley Spencer RA. There will also be works by leading contemporary artists Rose Wylie RA, and Maggi Hambling, among others.

The Jerwood’s philanthropic aim of collecting privately for public display chimes with The Harley Gallery’s mission ‘to create spaces where creativity can flourish’. 

The Harley Foundation is a charitable trust that was set up by Ivy, Duchess of Portland, to encourage the enjoyment of the visual arts. It funds the gallery and The Portland Collection museum, which displays works of art from Welbeck’s historic collection developed over the centuries by the Dukes of Portland and their families. It exhibits rare masterpieces by Michelangelo, Van Dyck, and even the earring worn by Charles I at his execution in 1649.

  • The Harley Gallery is situated on the historic Welbeck estate on the edge of Sherwood Forest, near Worksop in Nottinghamshire. Admission is free and there’s also free parking. Please check for updates and opening times.
